Friends of St James Square is a not for profit charitable organisation manned by volunteers, which has been set up specifically for the benefit of the local community and therefore also local businesses.

We all value our lovely and very special community and hope by putting on events such as A Very Merry Muswell and Midsummer Muswell we can help bring people together more and make Muswell Hill an even better place to live and work. However we cannot do it without your support and sponsorship, as they say every little helps and you reap the rewards not only in terms of bringing people into the market place and increasing awareness of your business, which you do, but also just in the simple terms of seeing people enjoying the event that you have helped put on.

We have various ways of getting involved:

  • Sponsorship: help us fund Muswell Hill Christmas Tree 2017
  • Donate a tombola prize please email muswellife@gmail.com.
